When Radio Technician Robert George ‘Joe’ Meek transferred his skills to engineering musical recordings, he helped create history. His RGM Sound Studios above a shop on the Holloway Road, in North London was the birthplace of some of the sounds of the most futuristic sounds of the pre-synthesiser era. And the Tornados went from being his house band to transatlantic chart-toppers, thanks to a tune called ‘Telstar‘.  This wonderfully evocative slice of Sixties instrumental music from the genre, is to be enjoyed again and again on premium quality vinyl, as intended. Not bad for an album whose title track Drummer Clem Cattini commented on, when first hearing it proclaimed that it ‘didn’t really sound right’…
